Searching for good sources for English Folk songs for children. Are there any websites that have collections, lyrics, music and recordings? Can anyone recommend collections of books, printed materials, recordings, CD's ...online sources etc.

Just starting my search for these materials. I would love some suggestions and leads.

I appreciate any help.

Thank you.

Rose

Copies of English Folksongs for Schools by Sharp & Baring-Gould is always available on secondhand websites even though it's a century old.
Probably get a copy for less than a quid.

If we gave you a list of suitable songs here you could easily Google and download or get some of them from the DT here. I'll start the ball rolling.

One Man went to Mow
Henry My Son
Wraggle Taggle Gypsies
Mermaid
Golden Vanity
High Germany
Three Jolly Huntsmen
Sweet Nightingale
John Barleycorn
White Cockade
Lark in the Morning
The Fox
Saucy sailor
Cuckoo
Jolly Waggoner
Dark-eyed Sailor
Frog and the Mouse
Old Woman and the Pedlar
Carrion Crow
Foolish Boy


Having got most of these from the above-mentioned book, about half of them are really unsuitable for children, being about sexual encounters or too violent or unPC.

The Singing Together booklets had all sorts of wonderful songs for children. Many of those songs were transcribed and posted at folkinfo.org. That Website is gone, but there's an archive of the Website on my Website, joe-offer.com. There's an index here (click).
